Changed cartridges, printer doesn't align or function


Something seems to be physically wrong in the mechanism.

Try the rolling wheels and the belt on which the cartridges run.

Red colour toner replaced Cartridge with a new onebut still no print coreect. Replaced the Yellow colour toner Cartridge with a new one but printing is not clear.


this problem regards the head of the catridge. u have to do clean due to dust it may happenlike that. u clean inside with the cotton cloth on the print head and refix the all color catridges. when u remove ur catridge u have to close all the sides due to avoiding dry.
the second reason when u purchase ur catridges, check whether the catridges are valid date.
